Hopefully I can get back on schedule very soon! But for now enjoy these super simple Glitter Gradient nails that will look good on any nail shape for any occasion.

With a glitter of your choice, apply a light layer over a third of the nail. I used Sephora by OPI in “Only Gold for me Top Coat.”

Apply some of that glitter polish on a makeup sponge and then dab that on to about half of the nail, making it more concentrated as you get towards the tip.

Shark Week Nails

Hi everyone! I know these are like a week late but I like to participate in holidays/events with my nail art. They are actually simpler than I thought they’d be but I thought they turned out pretty cool!

Hi everyone! I wanted to do something simple but summery so this is what I got! The flowers were supposed to be in a thick line going down the middle of the nail but it didn’t really turn out like that..

IMG_4520IMG_4521IMG_4522

With the same dotting tool and a metallic color, place a dot in the center of each flower. I used Ulta’s “Twinkling.”

Seashell Nails | Inspired by @kirakiranial and @nailove2807 on Instagram

Hi everyone! I saw @kirakirnail and @nailove2807 posts on Instagram and I just had to recreate this look! It is completely inspired by them both! All supplies used are listed below as always! I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170716_191056_255

Start off by applying a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4477

Apply a couple coats of a sheer pink polish as the base. I used Forever 21’s “Rose Petal.”

IMG_4479

To create the seashell, start off by painting a horizontal line where you wish for it to start on the nail. I Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush and Love My Nails’ “White.”

IMG_4481

Then, paint a vertical line coming from the middle of that horizontal line, this should get wider towards the tip.

IMG_4482IMG_4483IMG_4484

Simply create similar lines on both sides of this vertical line until you reach the horizontal line. The lines should slightly slant more and more towards the horizontal line.

IMG_4485IMG_4486IMG_4487

To apply the pearl in the center of the shell, apply a blob of top coat/gel/nail glue, it is your choice but I went with top coat. Then simply pick up the pearl with a toothpick dipped in top coat or whatever you’re using. I used Pandahall’s “1 Box White Mixed Sizes Flat Back Pearl Cabochon” from Amazon.

IMG_4489

Do the same with the rhinestones except place one on each side of the pearl. I used Born Pretty Store’s rhinestone wheel.

fullsizeoutput_7a1

Lastly, apply a generous amount of top coat to prolong the wear of the rhinestones and pearl. I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”

American Flag/Fourth of July Nails

Hi everyone! This is the nail design I decided on for this fourth of July season since I live in the United States. It is way simpler than it looks, especially if you do the dots instead of the stars. I thought it was a great, simple and patriotic nail look. I hope you all enjoy!

IMG_20170702_235452_855

Start off with a base coat, I used China Glaze’s “Strong Adhesion Base Coat.”

IMG_4248

Apply a red polish as the base color, I used Kleancolor’s “Red Alert.”

IMG_4250

With a striper brush and a white color, paint stripe going vertically on the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striper brush, Apple Barrel’s “White” and “Bright Red” (for clean up) acrylic paints.

IMG_4252

Using a blue color, paint a rectangle in one corner of the nail. I used Apple Barrel’s “Cobalt Blue” acrylic paint.

IMG_4254

In the blue rectangle you can paint white dots, starts or even just one star. I decided on the dots just to make it simpler and because I feel like I have done stars a lot recently. I used an XS dotting tool to do this.

IMG_4256

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used China Glaze’s “No Chip Top Coat.”
